Kashy was founded in July 2018 by Lachlan Palmer, as a fresh take on an old concept where apprentices and mechanics would take on extra work for family and friends as a way to make ends meet. So called 'cash jobs', or 'cashies'.
After leaving school, Lachlan followed his love for cars into a job as an apprentice mechanic earning a just $300 per week. With very few of his family and friends owning a car he didn’t have the same access to extra jobs as his fellow mechanics. This was when the first idea of Kashy came to fruition.
After working in the industry for 4.5 years and becoming a fully qualified mechanic Lachlan became frustrated by the way the current system works. Seeing many major and minor companies in the auto industry to be a 'bad deal' for both vehicle owners and mechanics alike – with vehicle owners paying exorbitant prices for services, while mechanics are paid as little as a tenth of what dealers charge per hour.
Since then he has put his effort into building Kashy, a business that shines a light on the current issues in the auto industry and solves them by creating an ethical and fair trade for all.
We understand that you might have a couple of questions about Kashy. Before you send us an email, here are some of the more common questions we receive.
Do you need a workshop?
You might be surprised to find out that our Kashy mechanics don't need a workshop for most of your repairs, and is why our Kashy mechanics can look after you at home or even while you work.
How does Kashy vet their mechanics?
We are incredibly selective about the mechanics we use and check their work before they start, and their ratings after each service.
What if I need to cancel?
No worries! Our mechanics are usually super flexible and so long as you give us reasonable warning, we will try to accomodate.
Are there charges for cancelling?
Not usually, the only time we request a cancellation fee is when we're unable to return the parts booked for your car, however this is rare.
How do I pay for my service?
We offer bank transfer, credit card, ZipPay and PayPal options after your service that means cashless and contactless service.
